  1. Combine the garlic, ginger, jalapeno, salt and turmeric in the container of a food processor or blender. Process to a smooth paste. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until translucent, stirring frequently. Mix in the spice paste, and cook for a few minutes to release the oils.
  3. Add shrimp, and cook for a few minutes until pink, then add the tomatoes and coconut milk. Cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes, then remove the lid and simmer an additional 5 minutes to thicken the sauce. Stir in the fresh basil during the last minute of cooking.

this is my favorite dish to cook. i substitute the turmeric with ground cumin, simmer at a higher temp for thickness, and serve over rice. good stuff.

Although this wasn't bad, I was disappointed. I followed the recipe to the T, except I used a 5.5 oz can of coconut milk, which I believe is less than 1 cup. Still, the mixture came out soupy and had to be strained. My food processor (a standard Cuisinart) wouldn't blend the ginger and jalepeno to a paste, the best I could get was a fine dice. I expected more flavor from the recipe, but it turned out rather bland. Perhaps the shrimp should be marinated in the coconut milk/jalepeno/tumeric/ginger mixture?

This was just an "okay" dish that I will probably not make again. I too could not get a paste in my blender and added two Tbsp. of the coconut milk to the mix to get a paste. I also used a can of diced tomatoes. The color was wonderful, it was a little soupier than I'd hoped, and even though it smelled fantastic, my husband and I both felt it lacked flavor. Overall, not a bad recipe, but needs some tweaking, I think.
